Now that I’m a stay-at-home-mom for up to 8 weeks AND still responsible for dinners, I’m going with even more simple, basic dinner menus. It may mean eating hotdogs and tacos every week. My sister-in-law’s family eats hotdogs Tuesdays and tacos Thursdays.
While I plan on eating hotdogs/burgers/tacos more frequently, I do have a few other easy dinner ideas on my mind. I think we all have “go-to” meals, right? No brainer meals that are easy to put-together. May be that’s mac and cheese for some people or spaghetti and meatballs.
My go-to meals include black beans and rice, stir-fry tofu and veggie with rice, balsamic chicken with rice, miso salmon and rice… hm, I guess we eat a lot of rice. Pasta is represented…seriously, we eat a ton of pasta, but I’m having a brain freeze. Ah, D just chimed in with pasta aglio e olio. Oh, pasta with turkey sausage, peppers and onion or pasta with shrimp.
If anyone wants to chime in with their go-to meals I would love to get new ideas.
For this week:
S – take out since we’ll be at the pool
M – grilled chicken/hotdogs, corn, salad
T – baked ziti that I made on Saturday, steamed broccoli
W – black beans and rice, salad
T – shrimp and pasta, green beans
F – left-overs
S – go out or udon noodle soup and mandoo
